Tourist from NY killed in Costa Rica shark attack

Rohina Bhandari was coming up from a scuba dive in Costa Rica when she was attacked by a tiger shark, according to a Costa Rican government ministry. Ministry said, Upon reaching the surface, the tiger shark attack on a tourist women was already serious. They are among the most risky shark species-second only to great white sharks in recorded attacks on humans. Costa Rica's Ministry of Environment and Energy called the incident rare and characterized it as an isolated incident, USA Today said.

Bhandari was one of the senior directors at WL Ross & Co.

Bhandari was well-known in New York's charity world, according to the New York Daily News.

On Facebook and Twitter, Bhandari's friends posted notes mourning her loss and expressing their shock at her death.
